The director of a private company has been found guilty of selling high class counterfeit clothing.

Kabamba Tabukanga, director of Gramadi Place Limited in Hoe Lane, Enfield, pleaded guilty to 16 charges of selling counterfeit goods.

For each charge he was fined £1,5000 with each offence running concurrently. The 53-year-old was also ordered to pay a contribution to Trading Standards, costs of £1,300 and a victim surcharge of £150.

The trading included good such as Chanel, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Dior and Dolce & Gabbana between January 9 and March 21, 2013.

Andrea Clemons, assistant director for community safety and environment for Enfield Borough Council said “Selling counterfeit goods of any kind misleads the public and steals the integrity of well-developed brands.

“Often counterfeit goods are made from inferior materials and the workmanship is of poor quality. This case is a strong warning that our trading standards officers will seize counterfeit goods and prosecute.”

The council had made several warnings to the private limited company for three previous incident of counterfeit clothes and jewellery at the Enfield base.

Fined £1,5000 really? NO! It was £1,500, doesn't anyone proof read before publishing?
